The word psychotherapy means “care of the soul” (from the Greek psyche + therapeia). While the history of psychotherapy includes theorists and practitioners with a bias against spirituality and religion, there have always been practitioners who found effective ways to include spiritual wisdom in psychotherapeutic work and a large portion of psychotherapy clients who wanted to talk about the spiritual dimension of their lives.

The SIP Training draws upon diverse spiritual traditions and psychological research to provide practical, usable resources to help therapists integrate spirituality into their work. SIP teaches mental health therapists how to elicit and make therapeutic use of their clients’ spiritual perspectives make ethically appropriate use of their own spiritual perspectives.

The SIP Training is for licensed and pre-licensed mental health professionals: counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, pastoral counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, addictions specialists, and others.

Participants who complete the 30-hour curriculum are eligible to pursue certification in Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy by completing 20 hours of consultation with an ACPE SIP Trainer.
